I’m new to Adalo so thanks in advance for any assistance.
Quick question on external connections - how do I go about setting up an external collection where the API has a mandatory query parameter but the parameter I want to pass in is dynamic based on the user’s selection?
I realise that I can use the ‘filter’ mechanism to pass in a parameter at the time of using the collection - so that’s good. The problem I’m running into is that Adalo does not let me add an external collection that fails the ‘test’ step and as the API endpoint requires the parameter, it will fail if it’s not passed in.
I’ve come up with a workaround, which is to create fields in the User collection which I update with the user’s selection. Not ideal, but does work.
Is there a better way to do this that I’m missing?
Date is a mandatory parameter. I’d like to not pass it in when setting up the collection, and instead pass it in when the user selects a date (i.e. as a filter parameter).
